earlier today that president obama is considering senator john kerry to be the next secretary of defense. again panetta has not resigned but there is a question about whether he is likely to and they seem to be floating a trial balloon at least to "the washington post" about senator kerry possibly replagues him. we will look into his stance on the military and war and we will talk with former white house chief of staff andy card next about the controversy that might come with a kerry nomination. major companies sparking controversy saying the president's healthcare law could change the way they do business. ahead what that means for employees. >> we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it away from the fog of the controversies. questions? anyone have occasional constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating? yeah. one phillips' colon health probiotic cap each day helps defend against these digestive issues with three strains of good bacteria. approved!

among them. someone like john kerry, not personally close to the president, not a champion in the building, she was always the person who had the inside track. this is a fight and to the point that hugo made, i think the republicans think this is a fight worth happening, not that she went out there -- forget what john mccain's personal invective, not that she spoke off the cuff but reading from talking points and their argument is those talks points were designed to mislead the american people. there's no question, i don't think there's anybody in the administration that think that period was well handled by the administration in terms of what it knew about what happened, how it conveyed it to the american people. it's been bubbling for weeks, it's true that they are going to personalize it on her. the question to alex, alex's question, at this point do you want to fight this battle and my guess is there's going to be at lot of whipping and the question is going to be, i think they will fight this bat physical they think they can win it. if they think they are going to lose
term. >> i do not think her plans have changed. >> possible replacements include john kerry or susan rice. also tim nightmare. eric holder has not announced his plan nor has leon panetta. >> i am not going to speculate on the future intention. >> he told reporters the cabinet issues will be dealt with appropriately. nikole killion, wbal tv 11 news. >> the president will be back on the road. he will be traveling to asia later this month, visiting thailand and cambodia, the first for u.s. president. >> the major developments regarding the casino in baltimore city. caesars is dropping the harris style casino in favor of its horseshoe brand. we broke the stews on our website. david collins joins us from south baltimore with more on what all this means. >> said passage of covent -- question 7 is a game changer. this casino will be high and. it means more of an investment from the operators. and it comes the number of new hires to 1700's. it is the vision of a gambler's paradise. they built it as the biggest jackpot. it is offered in six markets, this is from cleveland. >> it is a legendar
be replaced by another former presidential candidates. massachusetts senator john kerry. chairman of the foreign relations committee. another candidate, tom donolin and perhaps another controversial choice, susan rice. she was the obama administration's representative who gave the initial incorrect intelligence of the benghazi attacks. still most insiders believe rice and kerry are the two insiders. clinton's eventual replacement will be on solid ground. >> the advantage over a president who has got their bearings about what they want to accomplish around the world. >> reporter: at treasury, the top candidate to replace tim geithner, white house chief of staff jack lew who also served the president as the budget director. the president may decide to keep lew where he is and look else where. at the pentagon, leen panetta's departure probably won't happen unit thill spring but the short list includes michelle flournoy who served as the policy chief during the president's first term. she would be the first woman to head defense. jack reed a west point graduate and veteran of the arme
rice, but also against john kerry. sean hannidy said john kerry needs to be vetted. he served on the senate foreign affairs committee for 28 years. he was vetted when he got the bronze star in vietnam, when he got the silver star in vietnam, three purple hearts. now they are attacking susan rice, a stanford grad, a rhoads scholar, serves in the clinton administration and served as a u.n. ambassador. get over it. you lost last week. time for america to come together. it is a disgrace they are playing politics with our foreign policy. >> now, governor, senator mccain last month said -- well, let me let you hear what he said. this is amazing to me. >> it's very clear this was a colossal failure that cost the lives of four brave young americans. there has not been an intelligence fail like this in my lifetime and i have been around for a long time. >> there has not been an intelligence fail like this in his lifetime? what about 9/11? what about the iraq war with weapons of mass destruction where 3,000 americans died? what's he talking about? >> four americans are obviously four to
the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, the mccain campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the super pac effort. then you had -- i guess the final thing i would say is having the economy kind o
, when john kerry ran against george w. bush, the proportion of the electorate that was white, according to the exit polls, was 79%. 79 and everyone hundred voters were non-hispanic white. four years later, and in 2008, that number had declined to 74%. this year, that number declined to 72%. in the meantime, the african- american share of the vote over that time increased from 11 to 13. the hispanic share from six to 10. and the asian american share from one to three. we are experiencing serious demographic change. if you look at these different populations, the white population, the non-spec white population in the united states is a seat -- it aging. the median age is 42. that means half the white people in the united states are older than 42. the median age for the black population is 33. the median age for the hispanic population is 25. half the hispanic population in the united states right now is the younger than 25 years old. what does that mean? it would not mean anything if our politics and parties were not largely based upon race and class and ethnicity. right now, they are. th
in the after math 6 john kerry's loss,figure that can bring it b? >> part of what we did in 2005 in the after math 6 john kerry's loss, they're going through the same question. who is the leader of the sdmic party. and part of what we did frankly between governor dean and leadership in the house and the senate, we brought governors in and mayors in and kind of said how do we as a party better communicate our values. we looked at we're losing votes among people whom they share our values. so how do we do a better job of communicating those values. and think that's the kind of tough look that the republicans really are going to have to take in terms of where they go from here and what kind of party they want to be. >> but the democrats after '88, though, they he did a lot of soul searching and along came bill clinton. >> that's true. i just think in 2005 we were in a slightly different position. >> i think there's also a mechanical issue that needs to be addressed sooner rather than later. and that is the nominating process for the gop. because you've had this exodus of independents. that needs
an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clothes from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least five things a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and doing something that he will oppose in the end, cause he is mindful of 2014, as tom said. or whether you do not get that kind of impact and mcconnell works overtime to yank its members back into a tougher and negotiating position. if that is the case, we go right over the cliff. >> i think mitch mcconnell will not be able to sustain unified republican support behind filibusters over the long -- clusters. >> over the long, it may work to the lame-duck session, but the on but it, it is no longer possible. but norm's scenario of the quiet person in the back sp
. who knows. we're reading tea leaves. late play a fun game. susan rice or john kerry who do you think? >> i would say kerry. >> eliot: why because of susan rice and the benghazi? >> no. because with you know people who know their way around the hill. there is a domestic component to driving foreign policy that can't be overlooked. >> eliot: tina? >> his speech at the convention was an audition piece. >> eliot: not every audition works. >> yes. that was a kerry no one saw before. i was -- in the stadium. people were kind of -- sighed when he got up there. he knocked it out of park. >> eliot: people remembered that. >> he was the surprise sleeper speaker. >> eliot: treasury, tim geithner leaving. does he take somebody from wall street? >> undoubtedly. >> eliot: you think he does? >> absolutely. >> eliot: come on! so many people understand banking finance better than those guys. >> yes. ralph nader. >> eliot: robert rice. i would put him in any cabinet position. host of new york 1 errol louis and ed
? >> did anyone think president bush don't you think you should bring john kerry in to help with the negotiations? >> caller: how many times did george w. bush bring in al gore for consultation after? >> stephanie: i'm sorry and my head is still exploding. he won in a landslide and gregory is still making my head explode. >> caller: this phantom of bipartisanship that they keep worshiping. at some point you have to say you know what, we have now twice elected the same guy. >> stephanie: by a landslide. >> caller: we want him to do his plan. >> stephanie: say the l. word with us. >> do you think the american people of idiots? should he bring mitt romney in to negotiate over the fiscal cliff? what! >> caller: the very idea that they don't understand or they're just starting to grasp how wrong they were up until the very end how confident they were. i was just new oh, rude, please, i think gave gregory is right. who can't see the resounding result was that the american people want mitt romney! >> caller: mitt romney's plan should be considered. yeah. >> stephanie: sorry let me
brown, depending on when we get an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clues from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and do something that he will oppose in the end, because he is mindful of 2014, as tom said. or whether you do not get that kind of impact and mcconnell works overtime to yank his members back into a tougher negotiating position. if that is the case, we go right over the cliff. >> i think mitch mcconnell will not be able to sustain unified republican support behind filibusters. >> over the long, it may work in the lame-duck session, but it is no longer possible. but norm's scenario of the quiet person in the back speaking to kent
impact that. a number of sources saying she is the president's top contender for that post. senator john kerry obviously seen as a potential contender for that lot because of his work in the senate on foreign policy in those issues. for right now it looks like rice is much closer to getting the nod. connell: the issues that will come up. benghazi is one of them. the impact does will have on the president's decisions. >> in absolutely the fiscal cliff. issues about the inspiring tax cuts, sequestration, the impact. there ben vaults for years. some will be likely to walk away. leon panetta has been very vocal about his concerns about health sequestration could impact that pentagon. because of that, that will keep him in place. >> that would beecher defense secretary leon panetta. he has fought hard against sequestration because he did not want to see the types of cuts that sequestration calls for for the defense department. he is going to see that through. >> keep in mind, he probably has the toughest and most expensive commute which taxpayers are paying for going back and forth between th
will make what they said is the same mistake bush made in 2004 soon after defeating senator john kerry by the way, a little color from you from usa today about president obama's troup from chicago to wednesday -- i need from chicago to washington on wednesday. on the flight home, air force one colonel scott kronor brought the president a sheet cake to congratulate him to pose for pictures 63j kearney said a question done on the president there is somebody flying the plane, right? by wednesday evening he was back to work at the white house. we will go to jim next in tennessee. independent caller. we are talking about your vote and what it means. what was the message you were trying to send to the congress and the white house. >> caller: yes. am i on the air? >> host: you are on the air, jim. >> caller: yes, ma'am. i was watching the show as i try to come and i think we as the american public are kind of blind. you know, we like to be like a little kitten and have our chin scratched and when we have our chance scratched we close our eyes. we noted in today's society we are living longer
earlier but didn't have a chance. john kerry is my friend. i worked so hard for him when he was running for president. i did everything i could to help him. and he came very, very close. there's been no better legislator that i served with. he's been way out front on issues dealing with climate change, infrastructure, bank development and many other things. so i don't know any conversation that the president or nip in the white house has had with -- anyone in the white house has had with him and any conversation i have with john kerry he does not bring up about him being secretary of anything. but i'll do anything to help him if he's chosen. we feel very comfortable if in fact something does happen, we feel comfortable in massachusetts. i think that i've already told you how i feel about scott brown. >> what do you think his priorities should be coming out of today's conference? >> the president's priorities are as he outlined in his campaign. protect the middle class and small business. we're one vote away from that being accomplished. all we have to do is have the house of representat
as dismal a failure as john kerry. their racism the difference between romney losing in bush winning, with just a slight demographic shift in the country from 2004 to 2012. looking not where the republicans go, again, i think the best way to approach a is to try to figure out how you deal with a group -- the key groups. if you done better among women and with the help of todd akin and richard murdoch, you look in their small part. immigration is gearing to the right on immigration and his unwillingness to have a discussion with the voters. with african-american voters and ronnie doesn't have anything to do with this. all the talk about voter suppression for democrats trying to cheat, just increase the turnout tremendously among african-american voters. >> two parts. one of the primary and one in the general that i thought really? the first would be the debate in which he sitting next to rick perry. in the strongly to rick perry on immigration and attach rate hairy you never thought of as a squishy liberal for signing a dream act. at night at night that you know, if you're going to li
against john kerry, right? >> exactly. and it does give me a brighter outlook on the future although there is still a lot of work that needs to be done. this amendment passed in 30 other states. >> stephanie: yeah. >> prop 8 will be heard at the supreme court in march. >> stephanie: right. right. and i need time because i haven't even turned melissa fitzgerald gay yet. so i need someone to marry first of all. >> yeah exactly. there's still work to be done, but this is a heartening first step. society is starting to realize that we are just people at the end of the day. >> stephanie: yeah. it's interesting i had -- being out here from california and going through the whole prop 8 battle, a lot of us felt a little funny about putting minority votes -- but you are right, this is the first time at the ballot box, because that's all they had before is oh it has never passed. and it's like if you put slavery to a vote in 19 -- whatever. that would have lost too, right. >> exactly. the country should never worry about minorities living in fear of the tyranny of the major
dean revolutionized the use of the web. john kerry went forward on that aspect. but boy, the bush campaign had it going. in 2008, the mccain campaign was up and down. the organization after its, what they had in 2004 was lost in 2008. it had to be rebuilt by the romney campaign, but only after their able to get the republican nomination in april. it was late in part because of super pacs, which kept the process going much longer than it ever normally goes. as long as you and i have been watching this and before that, when a candidate started losing primaries, other donors close their checkbooks. you run out of money and you drop out of the race. what is happening is, they kept gingrinch going for a while. that is super pacs. the process went longer and longer. romney had to go so much further and longer -- here is a guy who is probably by nature -- when we met for him when he ran for the senate in 1994, that is where he was. non-ideological, problem-solving guy. he has to run so much longer and further to the right than he ever dreamed and in part because of the super pac effort.
interesting watching all of this move around. senator john kerry for the past month or so, there's been a lot of buzz about him, perhaps as secretary of state, that he was interested in that. it sounds like the president may have other plans for him. >> reporter: yes, possibly defense secretary. kerry is a navy veteran and he was very involved in the president's re-election effort. kerry played governor mitt romney in the president's debate prep. his name had been floated as secretary of state. but if ambassador rice gets tapped for that job the post reports that senator kerry may get the nod to the pentagon. kerry's o*fs will say that quote senator kerry's only focus is as senior senator from massachusetts. leon panetta says he's focusing on looming se sequestration defense and budget cuts and other defense challenges. he also says it's no secret that he wants to get back to his private life in california. martha. martha: we will see. molly, thank you very much. bill: if you had a vineyard in california -- judge you'd want to get back there too. bill: you'd probably be daydreaming about it a
? >> state is tough for me. i have a hard time seeing john kerry get the job he wants and replacing hillary clinton because that would open up a senate seat and presumably scott brown of massachusetts would slide in. i think the interesting one is treasury. jack lew obviously is a good candidate. one thing bouncing around the sphere is mitt romney who has experience there. but, you know, i think it's going to be hard to -- hard to see where the chips fall. obviously you want someone with a bit of outreach to wall street, but, you know, someone like a tony james, a private equity executive who is tied with the democrat, it's hard to see after this race and mitt romney having been the opponent, a guy like that fitting in. certainly somebody -- >> you need to head it where do you go in the blogosphere, i think. be careful. >> okay. okay. yeah. well, i'm not -- i'm not predicting romney but he's one of the most interesting names out there. but certainly somebody -- another serious name who could deal with fiscal cliff. >> that would be a great man. >> the state thing is interesting because as j
speculation that brown could make another run for senate if president obama names senator john kerry to his cabinet, senator brown is rumored to be a contender for massachusetts governor in had 2014. but brown insists his immediate future is focused outside of politics. >> there's no vacancy that i'm aware of and my biggest job now is to make sure there's a smooth transition from my office to the senator elect's office. there's not an opening right now for governor nor is there an opening for senator. but there is an opening for a dad and a husband, and that's the role that i want to play. >> wrote today about the future of conservatism. you say the challenge between self-reflection and cannibalization. >> for all the talk of the civil war within the gop, i just don't see it and it certainly doesn't have to happen. i think self-reflex is good and conservatives need to talk about what just happened. they also need to remember that they didn't bother explaining to anyone over the past four years why conservative politics work. they were on defense for four queers talking about obama this, oba
